Good morning - yes, it really is still morning. :-) We're off to a beautiful day with sunshine, a nice breeze, etc. It's been pretty nice all week and we've been able to open doors and windows to let in the fresh air. I love it when I can do that.
It's been pretty quiet, but I've also been busy. I've worked on my calligraphy and painting, plus I attended a board meeting of the calligraphy guild via Zoom. This afternoon, I'll be attending a class to learn about hosting Zoom classes because we want to start having "hybrid" meetings/classes in the fall in which we'll meet in person, but also conduct the meetings via Zoom so those from other states can continue to join us. It'll be fun.
We've also been busy watching a lot of baby birds hatch and learn to fly. So far we're on the second brood of blue birds in a nest box my husband built. We've had Carolina wrens nesting in a hanging flower basket right outside the back door and yellow bellied woodpeckers nesting on top the pole on which we have our weather vane. There have been 5 bluebirds that have been born and left the nest and another 5 eggs have been laid, 2 woodpeckers (that we know of) have been born and we've watched them learning to fly. There were 4 wren eggs and they're all gone now. We see several wrens flying around, so can only assume some of them are the babies, though they're all similar in size. We had a nest of House Finches, but something must have happened to it, unless the babies simply became able to fly during our last trip to Las Vegas - the nest was there and parents sitting on it when we left, but empty when we got back.
Anyway, it's interesting to watch all the activity just by looking out the doors/windows. We've had baby birds before, but never this many broods so close to the house.
So, I've had enough to stay busy and I feel relatively good, except that I get SO tired and it doesn't seem like any amount of sleep is enough. At this point, I don't think it's thyroid related, but it's hard to tell. Anyway, I'm getting by with a short nap after lunch and sometimes going to bed early (as in 9:00 pm).
Okay - I'm still watching what I eat and try to get in a few minutes of exercise/day. I haven't weighed this morning, but as of Thursday, I was down 1.4 lbs since last week. Yay me!! Let's hope I stay there instead of bouncing back up again. The weight thing could be a direct result of the recent increase in thyroid hormone medication. If so, I'll keep it. :-)
That's me and my saga. How are you doing? Were you able to reach your goal(s) for the week? I look forward to hearing about it.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
